Growing Chefs! Ontario: Growing Chefs! Thanks You!

Growing Chefs! Thanks You!
Posted on: May 13, 2022

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us over the past couple of weeks. While the theft of our copper wiring has been incredibly frustrating, and has made our operations difficult to manage, we are super grateful to all the personal donors, support from businesses and gifts in kind that we have received as a response! Our community is truly phenomenal!

Although we will still need a lot of support to get through this challenge, we believe it is time to move forward and focus on the positive again as we get ready to re-open the doors to our beautiful HQ! All events hosted in our space directly support Food Education.

Place an order for some of our legendary wood-fired delicious pizzas for Friday Pizza Nights! Or attend one of our Monthly Adult Cooking Classes; another great way to support all we do.

Thank you all, for supporting Growing Chefs! Ontario!
We continue to thrive due to your support and belief in all we do!
